Thanks to our friends at Glass magazine for attending the recent Facades+ LA conference. They've provided an excellent wrap-up of the event, which they called "invigorating and exciting." Editor Katy Devlin identified ten key themes from the conference: net zero building, net zero ready, material transparency, durability and sustainability, preservation, value, updatability, dynamic and integrated facades, human health, and water conservation. This variety and depth of subjects are precisely what makes the Facades+ conferences so important to the A/E/C industry. Next up, Facades+ AM in Washington, on March 5. Join the conversation!
